The Borrowers Afloat by Mary Norton.


Title: A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Grim Grotto.
Author: Lemony Snicket.
Genre: Fiction, fantasy, children's lit, YA, adventure.
Country: U.K.
Language: English.
Publication Date: 1959.
Summary: The Clock family, living in the house of a human boy named Tom are uprooted once again because Tom is moving away. Spiller tells them that they might go to Little Fordham, a replica village made for Borrower-size residents with plenty of food from the visiting big people. He lets them stay in one of his hide out places, a tea kettle, while he goes and investigates the matter for them. However, during the waiting period, the rain comes down and causes the kettle to be put adrift downstream.

My rating: 8/10.
